Who We Are

For over 30 years, NAMI North Carolina has worked with dedicated community volunteer leaders to raise awareness and provide essential education, advocacy, and support so people affected by mental illness can build better lives.

Peer Education

NAMI NC free education programs and support groups provide critical information and strategies for taking care of the person you love, but you will also find out that you are not alone. Recovery is a journey, and there is hope. Learn More.

State Advocacy

By establishing a state-specific public policy platform, we provide strategic leadership to improve North Carolina’s mental health system, end discrimination, and reduce barriers to successful life in the community. Learn More.

Raise Public Awareness

NAMIWalks is a signature NAMI event that raises awareness and funds to provide support, education and advocacy programs at no cost to people within our community. Register for NAMIWalks and join the movement!
